Question about Kenmore Blenders
I accidently got water into the bottom shaft of my Kenmore KHB320 hand blender; that is, the attachment that has the blade in it. It is now leaking some oily substance down the blade area, from where the blade attaches. I think it is machine oil and not something I want in my food!
I don't remember if there was a seal around the blade part, but there isn't now. Can this be fixed and how? Also does the inside need to be re-greased and how?
This blender has served me well so I hate to give it up, and Sears/Kenmore doesn't have a listing for the model any longer so can't provide a replacement part. I would very dearly appreciate any help on this! Many thanks in advance.
In the old days, there was a packing in certain places of certain applications.
Often it looked like a piece of string, usually a grayish color, as it often was impregnated with grease.
I would start with an automotive parts house, but it must be old and have old folks to help you, as young ones have no such experience.
You could also try a plumber, they used some packing string.
As a matter of fact, I have some in my plumbing repair parts, though I've no used it in 30 years.
You might have to use this each time you use the machine.
It should be not expensive.
God bless your efforts.

Grease can only creep into the blender vase if the oil seal has worn out, or the blenders blade shaft is worn and wobbling. Try cleaning all parts in alcohol to soften the seals. Rebuild kits and replacement blades can be found here (http://www.brevilleusa.com/breville-parts/blending.html)
